PEABODY, Mass., Jan. 26, 2015 — A 14-pin laser package from SemiNex Corp. is suited for integration as a high-power IR laser in systems where the use of disposable fibers is prevalent. The laser produces up to 5.8 W of CW power at 1475 nm and up to 5.4 W at 1560 nm. The package comes standard with a high-power SemiNex laser diode, an SMA connector for 200 µm, 0.22 NA fiber, a red aiming beam and a thermistor. It is also available with a thermoelectric cooler (TEC) for temperature tuning and wavelength stabilization. The ability to detach the fiber makes the package useful for front-panel mounting, and enables users to replace damaged fiber without having to replace the entire package. Applications include surgical systems, industrial processing, manufacturing and remote sensing.
